Subject: Perfect British comedy
Except for the references to current events, this really feels much more contemporary. It feels more like late forties to early 1960's movie--maybe even a little like MASH (t.v.). This was a little bit sharper than a typical screwball comedy, but never cynical. Very British, very timely in terms of it's message, but timeless as well.

Subject: Thoroughly Enjoyable
Great; February or November, it was still good.

Subject: This film was released on November 1937, not February 1937!
I checked a 1977 biography of Vivien Leigh, and this film was released on November 1937 (US), not February 1937, as AFI Catalog claimed.

According to Copyright Catalog and AFI Catalog, this film's copyright date was August 10, 1937. The film stock and the story description were deposited in October 1937, less than three months after first US publication.

Subject: An election goes to the dogs
Vivien Leigh, Rex Harrison, Cecil Parker, Sara Allgood - you could not assemble a finer primary cast for this screwball romp centered on a British bi-election. A Scottish blowhard's candidacy appears to be in the bag, but then all hell breaks loose over an unpaid dog license. (You can be forgiven for thinking of Frank Capra.) Excellent performances from the entire cast. Outstanding production values. The 100-dog invasion of the protagonist's mansion is a sight to behold! This one is engaging fun from beginning to end.

The complete print is in very good condition. However it is low in contrast, which can be easily corrected with the GOM and VLC players' image controls.

CAST NOTE: Arthur Wontner appears as the crown procurator. Wontner is best known for his many portrayals of Sherlock Holmes in films and on stage. Several of his Holmes mysteries are available here at IA.
